As the day gave way
To Nautical Twilight
I turned my back on
The force of which I am made
I am bound and gagged
Rupturing a delicate balance
When I left my world for his

Day after day, as my city fades
And is swallowed by his sea

She is boundless
Even breaking on the beach

Every alchemist
Knows fusion and fission
Can unify or drive a force to split
He has been possessed to drink of the spices
From the east by his liquid mistress
Which then pushed me into the lair of uranium
She divides time between greed and his twin, Tyranny

Day after day cities are betrayed
And the earthly sons lay their blade

And she is boundless
But by then she has been frayed

As the night gives way
To Nautical dawn I can see I must activate
The force of which I am made
